Victoria had fallen in love with their wedding venue when she attended a work function there a few years before. She told the chief executive at the venue she would get married at the Athenaeum, and when she called up to book her wedding, she was remembered.
The private members club is over 100 years old, and steeped in history; perfect for a black tie themed wedding reception! As it was a Christmas wedding, the place was already beautifully decorated, and the venue matched their Christmas decorations to their first Christmas wedding! So the whole place featured black and white décor.
Black birdcages and white candles with black bows decorated the tables, and the couple also had the word ‘LOVE’ spelt out in block black letters – not only was their wedding all about love, but it is their initials as a family: Lee, Oliver, Victoria, Elliot.
